Don't sit in the seats, make it happen, Cap'n.
Stubbornness, whining and 140(?) miles be damned!
Go and eat a slice of life.

It's never the drive there --- it's always the drive back.

I know exactly how that feels. Once or twice in recent years, I've gone on that kind of roadtrip solo. I met up with some cool people up there and loved the music and danced my ass off. Then drove on home all the way, with the windshield wipers on high beating the heavy rain out of my sight. Not to mention that I had a blowout that evening and had to drive home on the "doughnut" - smaller size spare tire. It was not the ideal situation all around, but I wouldn't change going that night, and I almost got on the road the next night to travel 7 hours to the next show. That was when I saw my one and only String Cheese Incident show. I loved the feeling of seeing a band I was familiar with from trading and downloading. I even gave a copy of a tape i had of them to a stranger who never heard of them, the guy who's house I parked in front of to change my tire- and he even helped me too. That was a crazy, but fun night, of course the band made it special for me. And some people there let me join in on their really good smoke, which I hadn't done in ages, so that really kicked it up a few notches.

If I was you and had the chance, I'd just go and have a great time. You know you want to. I don't think they're going to be coming my way this time around. But I have just found out that Derek Trucks - Susan Tedeschi Band, touring with Robert Randalph and the Family are going to be in London next week, and Warren Haynes the week after that. Don't know if time or money will be in my favor to make it, but I really want to go. It will be a couple hours from here, and one of the things holding me back is I'm about to start a new job, which has a 7am start, and I want to be on my best foot, so getting back at 2 in the morning is tricky. And I'm getting ready to take my family on vacation in 3 weeks and trying to save money for ice cream, etc... Well, choices, choices.
